has a new book coming out "panic 2012" the story of obama's final campaign. it goes through lot in the book but one of the interesting parts is his confrontation with rahm emanuel. he had been listening to a speech that rahm emanuel gave and ramm said this is off the record, this is off the record, as you're about to see. then they had a significant confrontation. that let's watch the first part of this, a recording that has not been aired anywhere else before. >> cenk: so michael hastings joins us now, of course a contributor to the "young turks," the buzz feed and the rolling stone. what was going down right there that we just heard on the tape? >> this was two days after president obama had been reelected. i attended a fundraising dinner for a private-public partnership at the ritz-carlton in chicago where mayor manual was giving a speech. there was 500 people or so. it was videotaped. in the lobby i approached him to ask a question. he immediately reacted by telling me that everything i just heard on the speech was off the record, i couldn't use, and then launched into a cri
and he thinks the obama administration is totalitarian because that's what he indicated with the word that he used in the statement. technically speaking its more like fascism he's talking about obama-care. socialism is where the government owns the mean of production and in fascism the government doesn't own the means of production, but they do control it, and that's what's happening in our healthcare programs and these reforms. guys, i want to go you, michael shure, what are your thoughts on this? is obama a fascist? >> no, he's not. my favorite was when mackey went on to say, i'm sorry i didn't mean fascist. some people would associate that with hitler and mussolini i'm paraphrasing here. what else do you associate it with? it was totally out of line and it made me want to buy processed foot more. >> ana: i love that you mentioned him back peddling a little bit he released people were up set about it. the price of his stock did not drop at all which i found interesting, but he found that the criticism was too much to bear, so he went on fox news and said the following. >> there is
of the majority? >> well, absolutely, you're right. one of the things i loved about president obama's speech yesterday is he did the obvious thing. he stated his values clearly and unapologetically. i think if you actually say what you believe, because a lot of these people who are scared to do the right thing they say they want to do the right thing but they don't, because they fear the n.r.a. and these other groups. bottom line is if you follow your values, and you explain things to people and help them understand that you're for them, the bottom line is you're going to win. that's actually good policy and good politics, but you've got to have some faith. >> it's not just the voters in rural districts. they're scared of the money. the n.r.a.'s going to spend a ton of money against them. >> no doubt about it. no doubt about it, but see his opinion that we had some democrats who are very much in favor of the n.r.a. position and they lost, because folks who are for gun sanity came in against them. that happened in a few jurisdictions across this country. the tide is turning, but a few people
obama says all the right things, oh, on the issue of marijuana weaver got bigger fish to fry. we're not going to spend federal resources and in reality and action, he has broken a record in how many dispensaries they've done in his first turn. he head of the d.e.a. is pushing all the raised. let me me show you some bigger numbers, marijuana arrests in 2011 alone. 750,000 for marijuana about half of the arrests for just marijuana possession. that's one marijuana arrest every 42 seconds. oh, i got bigger fish to fry except by the way, president obama, president bush, president clinton, all smoked marijuana but are willing to put 750,000 people a year in jail for doing the same exact thing they did they just didn't get busted on. how about prosecuting pot? do you know that it costs us $10,400 every time somebody is arrested. if you're conservative, shouldn't you be outraged by that that we're wasting that kind of money. we waste $7 billion annually on this nonsense, understooding 800 fistula million dollars in courts costs and $3.1 billion in prison costs. it's important to get real
